TWO brothers from Dame Bradbury’s School in Saffron Walden are celebrating a double squash triumph after taking part in the Hertfordshire Squash Championships.

Tommy Albright, aged 10, won the Under 11s Championship while his brother Alex, aged 8, won the Under 9s Championship.

Both played seven matches in the tournament – and while there was a nervous moment when they each lost the first game of their final matches, each fought back strongly to take the winning shields.

“It was an exciting day and it gave me a really nice feeling to win the final and know that I was ranked number one in Hertfordshire,” said Tommy.
